There’s no doubt a shift is happening in the hiring landscape. Many companies, big and small, have gone from rapidly hiring to cutting teams and reorganizing their labor force. But that’s not the whole story.
Despite the media’s focus on layoffs and hiring freezes, there are still many companies that are hiring. Just in the last couple of weeks, we’ve seen companies continue to hire, raise money and grow.
Labor Market & Startup Trends
To stay on top of everything happening in the tech hiring market right now, we’ve partnered with our friends at PeerSignal. Using their B2B Hiring Tracker and other data at our fingertips, we’re trying to paint a more complete picture of the tech industry right now.
Despite August being the slowest month for VC funding in the last two years, the Midwest has seen some great funding activity recently.
Forge Biologics out of Columbus, Ohio raised $90 million in a Series C funding round.
Digital Diagnostics in Coralville, Iowa raised $75 million in a Series B round.
Milwaukee startup Frontdesk raised $13 million in a Series B round.
Indy’s Olio raised $13 million in Series A.
Yes, there’s been a funding slowdown, but companies are still raising funds and growing. Some venture capitalists say this is actually a return to the glory days of early VC investing — when costs were lower for venture capital buy-in, and the bold risks taken yielded very high rewards.
